Only 1% of players complete Ranger mode?
In the steam achievements section, it says 1% of global players have gotten the achievements for ranger easy and hardcore mode. I have completed both, and it really isnt that difficult.

Ok i have fininshed the game many many many times, so i know the whole game, and where and when enemies will appear. So ranger modes were really fun for me, really made for intense stealth combat.

How many other people reading this have finished ranger modes? Looking forward to ranger mode Last Light aswell.

The Ranger DLC came quite awhile after the release of the game. Considering that the game doesn't have much replay value, it's likely that many players who had played it before just never played it since.

Combine that fact with the number of people who never completed the game, weren't sync'd to steam servers while playing, people who just don't care about playing the game on higher difficulty, etc.

It's not a hard achievement to get, but it's not really surprising that so few people have it.

The game was free for a while, so there's probably thousands of players that never finished the game at all. Babies.

EDIT: Survivor achievement unlocked. Complete game on Ranger Easy. Ranger Hardcore another day.

I have completed both Ranger modes, but ever since I completed Hardcore, the game won't let me start Easy Ranger. It defaults to Hardcore interface (which isn't much of a problem, but still annoying). Can"t wait for Last Light. Hope I can run it okay.

The sad thing is that it seems that the Ranger mode in Last Light will cost money.
Vicarious Apr 27, 2013 @ 3:19pm 
Correct. But i pre purchased so im good. Also i think metro 2033 had the ranger mode also in seperate dlc, it was free for pc, unlike last light seems it has a small cost. but metro is sooo good i dont mind paying.

I complete both ranger mods and its not hard for me!

All people that have the game in there library are included in the stats, regardless if they play it or not. The game sold a hell of a lot from the humble bundle.

I did both ranger modes, I have actually completed all modes besides normal. I do not see why people say this game has no replay value, I've played it so much and still love it.

Replay value doesn't actually mean whether or not the game is or isn't worth playing again, it's just a term which specifically refers to content which can only be accessed in subsequent playthroughs.

Also what RadiNightingale said is true, even people who've never played the game but have it in their library are counted in the stats, and during the Humble Bundle you could buy Metro 2033 for just a dollar.

Sadly i got all the achievments apart from 'Sticks Like a Bur' and I know how to get it too but never seem to manage it.

As for Ranger Modes being hard.......yes it was hard but then it was designed to be that way and I am totally not suprised there are 1% of people that have managed it.

****Quickly going to make sure I really did do both Ranger modes just in case anyone checks****

****Checked and YES I did do both Ranger modes too****

i have to say i didnt really notice THAT much difference betwheen normal and ranger. love that silly warning with YOU WILL NOT SURVIVE!!! at the beginning, thought it would be alot more challanging on hardcore

i found ranger better, just generally and ranger hc is the only way to play the game dunno why people havent tried it. That said i havent finished it on ranger easy i almost have but i cant be bothered just gonna wait for LL also it isnt that hard people die in 2-4 shots :P

I am currently doing ranger mode the problem that I ran into 3 times was that I ran out of filters or ammo and to go back was really far.

It's really easy to complete in ranger hc mode I think. As long as you don't kill human enemies where possible, you're pretty much good to go, I even end up with hundreds of bullets overflow at the end of the game.

I feel that the ranger HC is easier than the normal one. Less bullets required to kill with. Soon done with ranger Hc :D
